Superbowl Sundayyyy!

Even though my beloved Redskins didn’t make it into the Super Bowl, it was still quite the exciting games with the Ravens in it! I’ll take any Maryland team making the big game! Besides, the Ravens has a very special former UMD player on their team, which gives me another reason to happily root for them all season.

Terrapin alum and current Ravens superstar Torrey Smith has two pit bull dogs, one of which he adopted from the Baltimore animal shelter, BARCS! He is constantly on social media spreading the word about adoption, and one day even put out a specific appeal for a group of pups at BARCS who needed help, receiving hundreds of offers from his fans to take them in.

When Baxter was with me last year he supported football and his Terps, so I’m sure he’d be rooting for Torrey & the Ravens as well!

Long Weekend. . . with Charlie!

I know you all remember Charlie, the adorable perma-pup from Jasmine’s House that crashed at my place over Thanksgiving weekend. It’s all coming back to you now, right? The handsome markings, the big, dreamy eyes, the pint size body. . .

Well, he’s back at my place for a couple days over this long weekend, and we are loving it! Except there’s one thing different this time around: he’s now adopted!!!

When I introduced Charlie in November, he was looking for his forever home after finally overcoming some nasty health issues thanks to the hard work of his fabulous foster family. After going through a few applicants and having them fall through, his foster family realized Charlie wasn’t supposed to be anyone’s but theirs, and they decided to keep him.  When I saw him interact with their family – including his two six-year old human brothers – I knew all along that he was meant to be theirs, and I was beyond thrilled when I heard the news that he was home forever.

They’re enjoying the long weekend out of town, so I get the pleasure of having Charlie hang out at my house again! It’s only for about two days, which naturally means we’re going to squeeze in as many adventures as possible ;-).  Hope you’re ready for some cuteness this week!

P.S. Yes, that bottom photo has purple in it to celebrate last night’s football win. . . GO RAVENS!!! While I’m a Skins fan at heart, I obviously love to see a Maryland team make it to the Superbowl – especially when it’s full of UMD Terps and pit bull advocates!
